State of Play: P/CVE National-Local Cooperation - What We Learned & What Needs to Improve
National-Local Cooperation (NLC) is as an essential component of global efforts to prevent and counter of violent extremism (P/CVE). While counter-extremism efforts have traditionally been driven from the top-down, and employed security forces, this approach is limited. Not only does it essentially exclude local governments and civil society – stakeholders with critical knowledge and understanding of local dynamics as well as the access and means to address them – but the often heavy-handed tactics of security forces can divide communities.

While progress has been made in the past 20 years to improve cooperation between national and local stakeholders and to adopt a whole-of-society approach to P/CVE, this progress has been slow and uneven. In September 2020, the Strong Cities Network worked with the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) to produce a set of good practices to guide and strengthen NLC, but – as for the status of existing global approaches – there is currently little understanding.

To assess the state of play, the Strong Cities Network (SCN) led four targeted deep dives, analysing efforts in East and West Africa, Indonesia and Uganda.

Join SCN, and the four experts who conducted these deep dives, for an important and timely discussion on the barriers to and progress in NLC, and what needs to change for effective P/CVE. Four experts, four deep dives, important insights for policy-makers and practitioners.
